Another victim dies
Last week's shoe factory blast in the capital's West Islambagh, which had killed one and injured seven workers, claimed another life as one of the injured succumbed to his burns yesterday.
The deceased, Rubel, 22, sustained 60 percent burns to his body in the July 29 fire and had been treated in Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
The conditions of the other injured--Dipu, 13, Sharif, 18, Babu, 25, Ujjal, 26, Sohel, 30, and Sentu, 35--remain uncertain as well, said hospital sources. With 90 percent burns to the body, Dipu is in a more vulnerable position.
The fire in Shikder Plastic Factory followed by a blast had killed Sabbir Hossain, 22, on the spot.
